Diamond Illusion is the best I have found.

I have been using it for tippets. A snook wrapped me around a piling and took a jump on the far side. With a lot of pressure, the flyline and tippet actually unwrapped and I released 12 pound snook. The flyline and butt section were shredded, so was the 10 pound tippet but it survived. Good stuff.

Silver Thread Excalibur. 8-)

Also, not too many monos out there. They're all mostly copolymers now.

I use yozuri hybrid (8lb) for river small mouths and absolutely abuse it. I often intentionally cast in front of large boulders and use them as a fulcrum to work topwaters in one spot in the current. I've had a few 20+ fish days this year without retying. I know it's called "hybrid", but this lines a mono as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, I have not used mono is some time, but if you want my quarters worth I would have to pick P-Line CX and CXX.

Some of the lines listed are co-poly...true mono is indeed getting to be a rare find. Also, I did't realize that P-Line owned Sufix? (CXX owns Siege)

I don't fish mono anymore so I don't have a rec., sorry.
